DONE FOR NOW

So, almost a foot on the ground. Almost forgot what winter is like…Given the temperatures coming the next several days, most of this snow should be gone in a few days. But then, stay tuned for about 7 days from now. First, the models showed another significant storm. Now, they are predicting the same kind of split we have seen so often, but we might just get some precip from the northern part of the storm. So if you plan to be at the lake, keep a weather eye posted…….

HAPPY EASTER!

And welcome to “spring.: First, no matter what the winter has been like, it ALWAYS storms on Easter. Maybe 3″ by 7 am, and more to follow. By Wednesday night we could have close to a foot. So, then, welcome to “winter.” Are you feeling whiplashed?

Then, next week, more is possible. But after that real spring likely returns. Gotta just go with it…….

DRIVING IN

People keep asking, “Can I REALLY drive in?” “And if so, do I REALLY not need 4 wheel drive?” Yes, and yes. I even saw a guy riding a bike on Friday. Except for one 30 foot section, (which was melting fast yesterday), the back road is completely dry, as is Bucks Lake Road, and all of the cabin dirt roads are dry with occasional ice patches. So, quit hesitating……

A RESPECTABLE LAKE

Right now Bucks is looking about like it does in late July or August, and comes up a little each day. Just about all the docks are floating now. I don’t have the PG&E numbers in front of me, but at this point the lake looks better than it did all last summer. Here’s hoping for some more wet stuff between now and June….

A LITTLE SNOW?

Maybe. It certainly is going to get more seasonably cold. I think a little snow dust. Next weekend, maybe a little more. And still cold. We can still hold out hope for a little more wet in March.

THE CAMERA, PART TWO

I have always felt that if I named this camera, the name would be female. Yes it is working again. Why did it quit? I don’t know. Why is it now working? I don’t know. Female name……. Forever a mystery to me……

DRIVING IN

Until it snows again the Road Department is allowing wheeled vehicles to drive on all the roads in and leading to Bucks Lake. Personally, I STRONGLY recommend 4 wheel drive. Obviously, any snow at all and two things: the roads will close again, and you will be on your own to drive back out.

RAIN? SNOW?

You can see from the camera we got a little more snow to start this storm off than we anticipated. But now, look at the rain gauge….. 1.22″at 7 pm Friday. Keep watching that reading, as I think we will finish up somewhere around 8″ by Monday afternoon.

It sure would be nice to have snow, but of course we will take every drop we can get. And, hold out hope for the second half of the month, starting somewhere around the 16th. Some of the long range models have our resident high pressure area moving somewhat north and west, and thus allowing storms to swing in underneath, right into our area. The question: that far south, will they be cold enough to bring us the snow we need? To soon to answer that question. Stay tuned.

FLIGHT OF THE C-130′S

While we wait for the rain on Friday, it is so much fun to have our quiet afternoon punctuated by the sight of C-130’s cruising by at eye level!

Thanks, Tony. It is always so much fun to see our tax dollars at work!
